Chimp Attack Victim Moved To Boston Area 5-07-2010

A Stamford woman who was mauled by a chimpanzee last year has moved from an Ohio hospital to an assisted-living facility in the Boston area.
A lawyer for the family of Charla Nash told The Associated Press on Friday that Nash was discharged from the Cleveland Clinic on Thursday night and flown by private plane to the Boston area, where she's now in an assisted-living facility.
The attorney, Bill Monaco, said Nash will be learning skills needed to live independently, and she's hoping to have more reconstructive surgery.
The 200-pound chimpanzee attacked Nash in February 2009 after its owner asked Nash to help lure it back into her house in Stamford.
The animal ripped off Nash's hands, nose, lips and eyelids.
A Cleveland Clinic spokesman said Nash has made "great" progress.
